En Plein Air: Street Scene (Oil, 12 x 9)
My friends David, Ariel, and I met at the intersection of Greenway N. and Markwood Rd. in Forest Gardens to paint the street scene this morning. I have to credit David for discovering the chimney of a house down the road. He mentioned to me last week the chimney which reminded me of a miniature stone pagoda of Japanese garden. Then, when I noticed the stone wall of the terrace along the sidewalk, I could not but smile to myself because it brought to my mind the stone walls of the Japanese royal palace in Kyoto. Therefore, we decided to paint it.
